My name is Murray White. I am an Employer with In Company of Friends.
I work construction with my Dad. It can be frustrating sometimes because we don’t always agree. The good though is we laugh and joke, we tease each other and get back to work. Just today, I wasn’t feeling well, but I kept working and Dad said, “See you can do it.” I want to do a good job, so he is proud me. He believes in me and trusts me and that’s important.
Working with dad has brought us closer. I confide in him when I have a problem, and if he needs help, he calls on me. We have become many things to each other like father, son and brother.
My advice to everyone is to try things together, it doesn’t have to be difficult, just go forward together. It’s important for kids to get to know their parents, and for parents to know their kids.
